Control the Noise.

DAAL - Active Noise Control


Our Story

Founded by Dag A. Aa. Loe and Sigmund Birkeland in 2016, DAAL Noise Control Systems is built on first-hand experience of the motorcycle rider’s need to reduce wind noise while riding without interfering with important traffic sounds. Uncompromisingly addressing the technical challenges linked to satisfying this need, and applying a high level of expertise in development of ANC (Active Noise Control) technology and products, the DAAL team has brought to life a proprietary and patented technology for Active Noise Control and Communication for complex environments (DAAL ANC). Today DAAL is comprised of an international team with headquarters in Trondheim, Norway. The core team are all stakeholders of the company, either as Founders , or as members of the DAAL Partner Program. Our shared passion is to fix problems without creating new ones, and along with always taking responsibility for the end user experience, this is our fundamental product philosophy.
